Section 2 - Spring Rigging
Completed! Very few pictures of the spring rigging

 12-Mar-08 Cross-Equilizers re-made in steel.  The cast aluminum ones were fine, but I was not happy about using aluminum in this assembly - I plan to add more weight to the frame, these components will have to take the additional weight. I felt better re-making them in steel.  5-Mar-08 Laying out the Cross-Equilizing arms in steel.  The forward equalizing bracket and assembled suspension components.  The leaf Spring, journal saddle and suspension components in place.  1-June-05 Setting up to turn the clevis brackets.  1-June-05 Machining the rear cross equalizer bracket.
